Make a holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn, France your home away from home

Tarn, a mountainous department of south west France, is situated in the Midi-Pyrenees province. Tarn is a glorious region of rural France, where the pace of life is leisurely, the culture is strong and the scenery is green and peaceful, broken only by fortified medieval towns and impressive fairytale Tarn chateaux. Holiday rental chateaus in Tarn are perfect for family holiday, extended family reunions and special occasions due to their size, space and grandeur, all at hugely good value.

Things to do on holiday in Tarn, France

As I mentioned, Tarn has a rich, traditional culture. The museums of Albi give a great insight into the history of the department, including the famous Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, dedicated to the local artist. The engineering miracle of the Millau Bridge which straddles the Tarn Gorge makes essential viewing from a Tarn gite, especially if you have hired a car to drive hundreds of metres above the ground.

The river which carved the huge Aveyron Gorge is a mecca for white water rafting and canoeing, with some of the best and most challenging stretches starting in the St Antonin area, which is a great place to take a Tarn gite or chateau if you intend to take to the river. Horse riding in Tarn is hugely popular too, with the open expanses of green open spaces lending themselves to both single day rides and long riding holidays. The mountain biking and walking in Tarn is also top class, with many marked trails across some of the most beautiful scenery to be found in the area.

There are some great golf courses in Tarn too. The course of Chateau Lasbordes in Albi is a particularly good course, but there are many excellent rounds to be had all across the department, so you will undoubtedly be able to find a good course in close proximity to your holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn.

Cordes-sur-Ciel is probably the most magnificent fortified bastide towns, set proudly on a hilltop in the Tarn countryside. The huge, domineering chateau which dominates the skyline offers sweeping panoramic views across the department, and is a perfect place to start getting a feel for the department’s rich heritage and culture when you first arrive at your holiday rental in Tarn.

Wine connoisseurs who have taken a self catering property in Tarn must visit Gaillac, the village at the centre of the Tarn’s wine trade, and the local markets in most villages sell delicious local produce, especially the large bustling market at St Antonin.

Weather in Tarn, France

It has been beautifully restored and is full of character. Large rooms throughout retain their country charm. All were spotlessly clean. The facilities far exceeded expectations and help was always at hand to deal with any queries or problems. Outside, there were choices of where to eat or catch the sun. The grandchildren loved the pool which was surprisingly warm and the garden was great for exploring. They also enjoyed the suggested walks, an excursion to the lac near Revel and pony trekking not far from the house. Main shopping and supermarkets were a 20 minute drive. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to my friends.

The pool was brilliant, the kids were in within 20 minutes of arriving and every day after. The gite has everything you might need, Peter and Lizie have thought of everything! Nearby Albi is beautiful and there are some picturesque villages nearby. The moules frites at Le Grand Chene is a good night out, there is a bouncy castle next the restaurant for the kids, while you have an aperatif... There is also a fantastic tree adventure park at St Pierre de Trivisy, for adults as well as children - great fun! If you're a family of four then this gite comes highly recommended.
